Director Statement


The goal of this film is to showcase the journey that we go through, recognizing the pain, habitual patterns and past experiences, exhausting all the possibilities.
Just to notice that we are all looking for a human connection, someone to hold us as well as someone to hold.

To spark conversations about the pain that we go through as a form a healing,sometimes the unspoken words are the ones that hurt the most.

My goal is to help people connect with their humanity, and show how anyone can connect with you, no matter where we come from, or our differences.

Using my art form as a form of healing and activism to acknowledge what happens in the world and help the communal healing.

Taking Risk every day to inspire others. Finding everyday a moment of strength in vulnerability
